Evaluating limits

  1. Mar 14, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    [itex]\lim_{x\rightarrow3} \stackrel{(t+1)^2}{(t^2+1)}[/itex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    if the bottom was t^2 - 1 i could factorise and cancel but when its t^2+1 im not sure how to go...

    Here's you limit.

    Note: for fractions, use \frac{}{}, not \stackrel{}{}

    [tex]\lim_{x \to 3} \frac{(t+1)^2}{(t^2+1)}[/tex]

    You can evaluate this limit directly.
